This work provides a social and cultural history of girls in the German youth movements in the pre-Nazi era. Bringing light to bear on the history of the German youth movements, it also aims to contribute to our wider understanding of girlhood in the period, and how mentalities, collective identities and German nationalism developed in the three decades before the Nazi period.

Industry Reviews

"This welcome monograph sheds considerable light on the machinations of female youth organizations prior to the Nazi era... highly recommended." -- A.C. Stanley, Choice, July 2008 "...her [de Ras) study presents new and very valuabe insight into girls' participation in the youth movement and their construction of a 'girls' culture' in the first three decades of the twentieth century; furthermore, her project contributes to a better understanding of how young women's participation in the youth movement later influenced women's role in the construction of German nationalism under the National Socialists." -- Julie Koser, Focus on German Studies De Ras's book provides a useful and important examination of the formation and shaping of gender in the German youth movement that will be of great interest to scholars and students of modern German History - Lisa Pine, London South Bank University, UK
